Minimize Sensor Description

The MIPAS instrument (Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding) is one of the three atmospheric chemistry sensors on-board Envisat satellite (March 2002 - April 2012). MIPAS is a Fourier transform spectrometer for the detection of limb emission spectra in the middle and upper atmosphere. It observes a wide spectral interval throughout the mid infrared with high spectral resolution.
